Survey reveals importance of innovation
Published:  26 January, 2018

A survey undertaken by SANDVIK has revealed the importance of adopting new technologies, while at the same time keeping costs down for customers purchasing stainless steel. Visitors to the Sandvik stand at the Stainless Steel World 2017 exhibition were surveyed on a series of topics and issues relating to the current stainless steel market and the elements they see as important when making their purchasing decisions.

When asked about the top three ‘drivers’ used by those determining the purchase of stainless steel products, the adoption of new technologies was considered to be most important at 65%. Cost cutting came in a close second at 62% and safety and security came in third with more than half of those polled seeing this as a key priority for their businesses.
